    I'm having my first ever contest. Woo-hoo!

    There is no cost to enter this contest.

    The Grand Prize ( well, the only prize ) is your choice of ANY graphics package available on the Sad Duck website!

    The contest will be in effect from Monday 09/07/2015 @ 0800 ( US Central Time ) until
    Friday 09/11/2015 @ 1200 ( Noon, US Central Time )

    The winner will be announced as soon as I receive the judges final verdict ( and get somewhere I have an internet signal! )

    Okay, there are a few rules before we get started.
    1. You MUST use at least 1 graphic from the Contest Package available on my website.
    a. http://sadduck.com/digishop/contest2015/
    2. ALL entries will be ROYALTY FREE.
    a. you may use ANY royalty free graphic you have
    b. If you submit a design, you must understand that ANYONE can download and use that design for any purpose and at any time. You retain no rights of any sort. No one does.
    3. Judging will be by 3 independent judges ( I'm not one! Neither is Laughingbird Software )
    4. ALL entries must be posted to THIS forum thread!
    a. Post anywhere else, your design will not be considered.
    5. Early and/or late posts will not be considered. Download the package now, but DO NOT post any entries before 8am tomorrow ( US Central Time )
    6. Enter AS MANY times as you like! I'm looking for ideas!!

    Whew! I think that about covers it. I placed a sample in the download package just to get the juices flowing! Have fun and let's see what you can do!

    Found the problem requiring everyone to log in. There's a toggle in the script that works backwards! Emailed the author and he confirmed. It'll be fixed in the next release. Oh well. Sorry for all the hassle everyone. It should work fine now.

    As far as being slow. It's not. It's your connection, or the fact that to many are trying to log on at one time. Not much I can do about that except grind my teeth. I'm not paying ( yet ) the big bucks for a dedicated server. Sorry again.

    I'm still burned about that toggle being backwards! Argh!

    Anyway, hope everyone is getting it! And having fun! Despite the frustrations. I've found that beer helps a lot!

    Let me know if anything else strange happens. And let's see some creations before I do lose my mind!

    What do they say ... no pain no gain! Glad it's all working out, and you're not a pain. Others have issues too, you're just not hearing about them. Forget it and move on is what I say! Hope to see a graphics post from you soon! Let your imagination run free!!

    I would like to join the contest with this design (ive used 3 of your images). I guess someone has to be the first to post a design and maybe others will follow now.
